Whoops! I totally forgot i still had a whole bunch of ELF stuff to review! I get so carried away, especially with big hauls which invovle many separate posts.. my bad! Anyways, here are the ELF Super Glossy Lip Shines that i got with my haul :) I am really really loving these and i think i can say that these are the second best lipglosses i have tried! (with the first being revlon's Super Lustrous Lipglosses!)
The colors i purchased were Candlelight, Goddess, Watermelon, and Malt Shake.

And now for the swatches!

These lipglosses have very good pigmentation, great shine and shimmer (for those that are shimmery, malt shake is not) and also contain spf 15. The best part about these lipglosses, is that they are not sticky! I dont know how many lipglosses ive tried that are super sticky, and i just cant stand them! (which is why even though i LOVE the colors of MAC Lipglosses, im scared to purchase them due to their stickyness!) These however, are not sticky but instead leave your lips feeling moisturized and soft. All of these also have a nice fruity scent to them which is quite pleasant.
I love the tube packaging of these lipglosses! Although it may not look as fancy or pretty as others (and trust me, i am a HUGE sucker for packaging).. these tubes do the job and they do them super well! Since there is no doe foot applicator to pull out, these lipglosses are a breeze to apply. You squeeze out the amount you want (easy to control!) and then apply! Very sanitary, very easy and very quick! Only little problem is, on one of my lipglosses, it seems as if the hole was cut from inside to outside so theres a few rough edges which feels slightly uncomfortable when applying. However, this happened once out of the 4 glosses i tried and ive never really heard other bloggers complain about this so i guess its just my bad luck :(
- Great texture (not sticky!) and shine
- Amazing pigmentation, colors are true to what you see
- effortless to apply, sanitary packaging
- spf 15, your lips need to be protected too!
- very cheap!
- some may have rough edge which causes discomfort (but low chances)
- may be harder to find up here in Canada (select Winners may have some) but you can always purchase online (however, there can be shipping charges)
I loveeeee these lipglosses! The colors are true to what you see, they provide great shine and moisture without the sticky feeling and they are super super pigmented! Goddess is my all time favourite "nude-without-looking-dead" shimmer lipgloss and i would definately highly recommend them lipglosses to everyone who's asking!
Would I Repurchase?
YES YES YES YES YES! I loveee these!! and for $1 each, they are sooo worth it! I have seen several sets of these lipglosses at select Winners up here in Canada.. they're usually a set of 5 for $7.99 CAD so it is a bit more pricey then getting it online.. but you dont have to pay for shipping and wait.. so its up to you! Plus, ELF is now available at Zellers and i have seen a sets of 3. Anyways, i would definately recommend trying out these lipglosses! especially if you're like me and dont like that sticky feeling.
So tell me, have you tried these before? Whats your favourite shade? Mine's Goddess but i would love to hear some more opinions!
